Links to HCPCS Information HCPCS is called Level II coding. It’s used to supplement the CPT and provide reporting codes for CMS on items such as injectible medicines, durable medical equipment, ambulance services, etc. which are not included in the CPT. There is a link in the CPT module to the HCPCS code files, but you can also read a good overview from CMS, and from that link also access the HCPCS codes, and other information, including instructions for using HCPCS. 1.
